World Mental Health Day


It’s #WorldMentalHealthDay. When I was growing up there was no such thing as ‘mental health awareness’. Many people struggled in silence and confusion for a very long time. Today things are changing step by step. I am extremely grateful for every person and organization who supports my work and values lived experience. Thank you…for the hope and healing. 

This portrait is one of my favourites. On this day, I had taken on too much in life. As I sat in the window, I breathed, hoping that my anxieties would not be portrayed on my face. Yet in seeing the image, I am glad that they slightly are, with an overall peaceful demeanor…because of this, I find it to be an exceptionally honest and beautiful personal representation. Thank you Ryan J. Wong for this photo.

Enjoy your day everyone! #MentalHealthIsHealth #ItsOkNotToBeOK #AskForHelp
